To develop something like that, maybe GNU Herds should use as 'account', to 
allow deposit money, an:

  a) PayPal account

     PayPal critics:

       "Many people are going through Paypal limitations and problems and
        are having their money held for 180 days. ..."

  b) Google Checkout account

     Bad: Do not allow person to person transfer.

  c) AlertPay account

  d) Merchant account

     For example: Real Merchant account:
       Reference from:

  e) ClickBank account

  f) GNU Herds could create one classic merchant account at USA and
     another at Europe?

  g) GNU Herds could developed its own system?


Maybe the final result should be a base system with a list of 
allowed-supported payment methods, bridges?
